Washington has hired Fresno State’s Kalen DeBoer to lead the Huskies, handing a program that has struggled offensively to a coach with a track record of productive and creative offenses.
The 47-year-old DeBoer met with Washington officials in Fresno, California, and the deal was announced a few hours later. DeBoer has spent two seasons at Fresno State, going 12-6.
The Bulldogs went 9-3 this season, including a victory against UCLA. They lead the Mountain West in yards per play and yards per game and are second in scoring.
